5 Gossip Girl-Inspired Velvet Headbands That Would Make Blair Waldorf Proud
You know you love them!
In case you haven’t heard, Gossip Girl is officially coming back with a brand-new reboot on streaming service HBO Max. According to a press release from Variety, the show’s original creators, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, are involved in the project, which will feature a fresh cast of teenagers navigating the present-day social scene of Manhattan’s elite.
Though there’s been no word on whether any of the show’s original actors will make cameos, the OG posse of Upper East Siders will forever hold a place in our hearts. Thankfully, there are plenty of current fashion trends that make it easy to pay homage to the likes of Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen — namely, the reemergence of the headband.
